The birth and evolution of our global society.

Scolding others does not teach compassion or tolerance - a common practice?

When Life and Logic Collide

We all appear to be living in our own little fantasy worlds and things are seldom as they seem.

We are easily controlled by anyone with a self serving interest.

This is a broad overview of the birth and evolution of our current global society.

This article is in reference to a little known, and little understood, phenomenon called "The Stockholm Syndrome".

I am not writing this article to discuss this syndrome in itself, but rather its implication and impact on our society, on a global scale.

The best explanation of this phenomenon can be found right here on hub pages in a hub by VendettaVixen. It is invaluable reading, beyond estimation, to understand in greater depth just how this syndrome works and why.

The only thing that needs to be known about the Stockholm Syndrome {that is relevant to this article} is the fact that it is a powerful affirmation to the phenomenon of "indoctrination" at its worst.

Indoctrination

My concern is its implication on a more massive scale and how it has impacted so negatively on this "global society" that we are all part of, whether we like it or not.

This article is NOT for the faint of heart, or those who are blindly entrenched in their lives of fear and guilt.

It is intended to, or more so, to reach a more mature, more educated, logical and realistic audience that can view these implications with logical discernment and are capable of their own thoughts and their own concern for their children's futures, and generations to come.

This is a wonderful and beautiful planet on which we all live and these are exciting times in our history, with the technology explosion, our exploration of time and space, and how we, as individuals, fit into it all.

So, read with an open mind and explore the possibilities.

We can no longer afford to live in a bubble, with our heads in the sand and/or elsewhere.

In the beginning-

from the standpoint of religion and the evolution of both the body and the mind.

The story of Adam and Eve? It is tale that is highly unlikely and impossible, in a realistic world of logic and probability.

More likely this planet was "seeded" by DNA from other more advanced worlds in our Cosmos.

We cannot discount the probability of life beginning on this planet as a direct result of beings advanced beyond our limited intelligence.

Nor can we dismiss the probability of "spiritual" beings that exist concomitantly, in the Cosmos, with the physical worlds of existence. And yet, some people still profess to believe in a singular Creator that craves only adoration.

It is indisputable that we had a distinct beginning, but logic must be implored in understanding that beginning.

It is logistically improbable that our entire current civilizations began with only 2 humans in the forms of Adam and Eve.

We can argue the proof of our conception based on rote from old texts, but they are entirely without logic, or without any factual scientific basis.

What we do know today is that it is proven, beyond doubt, that mankind is easily manipulated into believing what ever their self professed "superiors" want them to believe.

We call it by different names, but the end results are all the same, i.e.:

1. Stockholm Syndrome:

Sympathy/Empathy of captors toward their abductors.

2. Brainwashing:

by cult leaders' ability to "create" followers who are desperate to belong to something greater than themselves and without any direction based on logic.

3. Indoctrination:

the most powerful of all mind control techniques. Bombarding children from their birth to their age of reasoning and beyond; forcing them into believing the dogmas of whatever "faith" they have the misfortune of being born into..

The only difference between these three methods of mind control is the scale in which it is done.

The damages are all the same and require "deprogramming" to reverse them.

Size does not matter.

Just because any group (no matter their number of followers) has the legal right to force their ideas onto the minds of their children, does not make their "teachings" valid, real, or even logical.

The more elaborate these teachings are, and the longer they are in existence, the greater the impact on the "followers", or the "victims", of that sympathy, empathy, brainwashing and/or indoctrination.

By the sheer proliferate diversity of "religions" in existence around the world, the greater the "proof" of this false truth.

Great empires are built on this deception of humanity by those who have learned the art of manipulation, and had that deep desire to hold control over the lives of others while hoarding great wealth.

The Vatican and its ramifications on global society is a perfect example of this desire to control. And somehow, doing so in the name of a God gives it some validity in the minds of their inductees.

Large religions, smaller cults, and single captors are all in the same business of "control" over others.

"Control" takes many forms and is used everyday by those "above" us to manipulate the behaviors they desire, or want portrayed:

  • Corporate America's control over economy, 'jobs'?, finances, price fixing, etc...
  • Governments' manipulate behaviors by laws, taxes, mandates, negative campaigning, lying, bribery, etc...
  • Religious groups (every last one of them) manipulate behaviors in respect to 'morality' and 'conformity' by threats of eternal damnation if their rules are not followed.
  • Parents maintain control over their children by implementing various consequences for misbehaving.

These all range from 1 person controlling another to one country controlling other nations by fear, intimidation's, threats, and economic sanctions for non conformity.

There are those who believe that this 'control' over the masses is necessary to maintain order in any society.

There are those who believe just the opposite: Treat others with respect, honesty, and dignity, and we will produce a race of beings that are empathetic toward others and peaceful in demeanor, who desire to spread love in lieu of hatred.

True Democracy is the only hope for reaching a societal level that is non-hostile and without self serving despots controlling others as we see in most every country around the world (including the U.S.).

There must be new laws that reign in the destructive behaviors we see all around us today in every aspect of our lives.

Greed and self serving are the driving forces of society today and are the true enemies of the people.

Religions must be replaced with spiritual reverence for peace, harmony, love, brotherhood, and compassion for one another, by all individuals who respect each other - and the fragile environment we all live in and share.

Humane population control is soon to be a major priority, and must be dealt with in ways other than war mongering, genocide, or more frightening - killing off billions of people with genetically modified foods.

I will sum it all up with my comments to an article in which the author disputes, and rejects the idea that this world would be better off without organized religions in it at all:

Sometimes an in-your-face approach is best to at least light a spark of doubt in the minds of the brainwashed society.

I do think that most people doubt and question, but their religions teach them that to do so is also a sin. What a major mind trap that is. A virtual 'catch 22' between logic and fear. Brainwashing is a powerful tool for control over others.

The greatest message i try to send is: be true to yourself. Life is too short to live it in unfounded fears and guilt that religion has endowed humanity with for thousands of years.

It truly is time for us to come into our own realities, live life with optimism, kindness toward others, and without fear or guilt where none should be.

Happy New year, D

Most interesting article, your example of the possibility of DNA 'seeding of Earth by an advanced civilization was depicted in a film called "Mission to Mars"

I, like you, like to do my own thinking and if I come to a monotheistic solution to my question as to what it is all about, it does not have to be about religious dogma or control nor indoctrination. For the truth to be of any value we have to come into it on our own volition.

Oraganized religion is crap, unless it is made of people who have evaluated the cosmic issue and came to their own conclusions without brainwashing or intimidation, it is possible.

A belief in monotheism does not automatically correlate with corruption although too often it does.

Nice to see you around again

Thanks for reading and commenting.

I was not going to publish anything else on HP because of their new censoring practices. If they do not like the content of any hub, they simply confine it to hub pages readers only. Like this one for instance. It will never be visible to anyone who does not belong to hub pages. As with everything else in this world today, these decisions are made by a few who have the capacity to censure and limit based on their personal beliefs and/or whether they think your article will generate profits, or not.

So, there is not much point in publishing stuff on HP anymore unless you are Christian, conservative and have a lust for profits from you works.

Very interesting contribution!

You are right, HP is limiting it's capacity to be a major force for intellectual development among it's readers ... such limiting factors are often also present in other organizations in the form of mindless rules and regulations!

The central question which deserves a much greater focus in our research for clarity is the natural origin of intellect. Nothing humans were ever able to come up with successfully, from boiling water to splitting of atoms, over raising chickens to genetically modifying grain, it all had to conform to the objective reality of nature for any of these activities to even be possible.

Introducing ideas from super natural sources, only reduces the vigor with which we are trying to understand the objective reality provided by the rational world based on our natural life support system ...

The problem many ordinary people are faced with, are the invisible limits to rationality, causality and a reasonable probability of applying their intellect constructively in this modern state of mind pollution and institutionalized confusion!

Here is a good read on this very subject ...

thanks for your comments. The link to the "zerohedge.com" article was quite interesting. Complicated and confusing to say the least. 99% of the people have no idea what this all means, and how far the 1% have gone to take control of everything and protect themselves from any kind of backlash when the s... finally hits the fan.

It will be quite a feat of magic to restore democracy the way it was, or rather the way it should be.

Every great empire in history has fallen and this one will be no different.

The kinds of people that hijack and resist ideas that you put in print, and who otherwise are making trouble, are actually fascists that hide using religion as a tool to gather allies they would otherwise not have. We will miss your commentary

As it was once stated in cinema"The Force" can have a profound effect on the weak minded.

Great hub! I too have stopped writing hubs much due to the fact only the owners' little 'friends' get anywhere but confined to these little walls. Hub pages is no fun anymore because they too are only in it for the money the owners can make. They have no care for voices being heard. I do better on blogger lately. I will share this one on my Twitter though.

Hello Beelzebub. It is apparent that you desire more than anything to drag as many people with you as you can into the fiery pit of hell. And you are using our dear friend d. william for this purpose.

Oh yes, you preach that we should "Treat others with respect, honesty, and dignity, and we will produce a race of beings that are empathetic toward others and peaceful in demeanor, who desire to spread love in lieu of hatred."

But what you spread is hatred—hatred of Jesus, the one who truly stands for the ultimate love. You are filled with hate. I hope that one day you will leave poor d. william alone and pick on somebody who might have the spiritual strength to combat your wiles. He is helpless before you, that is obvious. Talk about Stockhom Syndrome. He is serving Satan, and either knowing it and loving it, and so under the ether that he doesn't realize it. Either way, Lord help him!

Thanks for your comments, and i apologize for the delay in answering. Somehow i missed several comments when they were posted, so i am trying to 'catch up' on them.

Yes, H.P. seems only concerned with promoting those hubs that will produce the most revenue for them, and they reject those that are controversial. I will be seeking to find another blog site that is more open to promoting writers for their message value, instead of their dollar value.

Thank you for commenting, and ditto my apologies as stated above.

I literally laughed out loud at your comments. I am afraid it is not i who has been deceived.

Brainwashing and indoctrination techniques are powerful tools that can affect a rational man's mind as they have done to yours. You have my sympathy for being a victim of that deceit.

Your thoughts are not logical, or even rational, as attested by your lashing out at me in your comments.

I hold no hatred for anyone, and i do believe J.C. lived a good life, and was persecuted by the government for criticizing them. Not much as changed over the past 2000+ years, it seems. He was martyred by the government when they created 'christianity' in the form of the Roman Catholic Church for control over the people they were persecuting.

I do, however, have sympathy towards those who judge me, and others, by their own shortcomings.

I get my inspiration from the goodness in the universe, and am guided by my sense of logic, rationality and common sense. I have no interest in superstitions, or fear mongering, and find the abusive treatment of children by religious mongers most disconcerting. Odd, how child abuse can be illegal in one respect and revered by our government in other respects - such as religious abuse.

I also believe in a creator (s) that has love inherently built into its core; not in false religions that promote hatred and intolerance toward other human beings.

All religions have their own versions of "catch 22" built in to fill their followers with fear and unfounded guilt for daring to doubt that their brainwashing might be faulty.

I have written to you before but have not read your posts in several months. I currently live near Birmingham and we discussed the problem with more liberal minded people trying to fit in here. I mentioned Stockholm Syndrome just last week to a close friend to describe the way I feel religion works in my area. It appears that people no longer think for themselves and believe in things and follow man-made rituals that make no logical sense and do not add one ounce to spiritual growth. I cannot even get in a conversation without religion being mentioned. I don't want to rant about religion and close-mindedness, I just wanted to mention the synchronicity I feel we have on several of the subjects you have been writing about lately. It makes me ponder the term and hopefully get you to think and blog about it as well. It is not just thoughts of Stockholm Syndrome we share, but I have been researching the cycles of the mood in relation to the moon, and the perception of reality vs actual truths, etc. I think the synchronicity of a certain "type" of individual is at play in our world now and am interested if you follow what I am trying to relay? Thanks for your written thoughts. I look forward to reading more.

The new, official religion: The protection of "US National Interests" at the expense of Global Human Rights and Freedoms, to advance the agenda of Big Business to indoctrinate and manipulate the individual to the point where the loss of all constitutional rights is not even seen as the much greater crime against the people than sharing information about all the illegal and clandestine activities by an oppressive government.

Daniel Ellsberg makes some very interesting comments about Edward Snowden here in the Guardian ...

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jun/1...

What will these criminals in government do, when more people see through their scare tactics and simply refuse the play along with these mind control games they keep imposing on our world?

Speak out, show your support for a world free of intimidation and oppression, express your humanity, become an activist!

Send your questions and comments to some of the key players in Washington. You find their names in all sorts of online news reports, etc. ... their webpages and emails are online, and so are we, so let's give them some thing to think about!

Hi. It is good to hear from you again. I hope things have improved for you since we spoke several months ago.

Your comments are certainly right on track. I do hope that some of my hubs clear up your self doubt. Always trust your inner thoughts first, never take anyone else's beliefs as gospel.

We all have to find our own path in this world, and make it as pleasant and easy as possible. Religions do not allow that luxury.

You speak about the cycles of the moon and your are right to explore that phenomenon as well. The moon affects the movement of our oceans' tides, that is a scientific fact. So it would logically follow, that since humans are made up of mostly water, we are also effected by the pull of the moons gravity in its fullest phase. Most people with emotional disorders are easily more affected when the moon is full.

The laws of synchroneity are present in every aspect of our lives.

I often speak of the synchronicity between the foods of nature and the workings of our inner bodies and how detrimental that genetically modified foods might be on our general well being.

When i started writing on H.P. i was attacked constantly by the right wing religious conservative zealots who are the direct product of brainwashing by their respective religious teachers.

Today, those who read are more enlightened, more understanding and more in synch with this point of view.

I believe that this is the proper direction for humanity to follow into the future instead of clinging to old outdated and erroneous teachings of hellfire and brimstone. They serve no purpose for mankind any more and our embracing of our god given "spirituality" that is a vital part of our genetic/physical/mental and emotional makeup is the part that needs the most nourishment in order to move in the direction intended for humanity

Thanks for reading and adding your invaluable comments to this article. We can never let our guards down and allow fanatics to take over our lives, our government or our global society.

The U.S. seems to be trying to replace the ranks of the tyrannical despots that are being toppled in the middle east.

What we need are more brave people like Ed Snowden to expose the lies being told to the American people in the name of security, when our government, corporate America, and crooked politicians are more about control over the lives of the U.S. citizens than making us more secure.
